Whiplash occurs when soft tissues in your neck, such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons, are injured as a result of an accident that caused your neck to go beyond its normal range of motion. The neck pain can be severe or minimal. In either case, if you are having neck pain, it is wise to seek chiropractic treatments on the Outer Banks.

Watch for these symptoms:

  • Minor or severe neck pain
  • Limited movement of your neck (trouble looking left or right)
  • Neck pain that extends into the shoulder
  • Swelling or spasm of neck muscles
  • Headache

What to expect from your chiropractic treatments on the Outer Banks:

Clearview Chiropractic will begin by collecting your medical history and symptoms. Often, you will fill out a sheet describing your accident in detail, determining the impact the accident has had on your neck. Next, x-rays may be taken of your spine. If this is your first visit, these x-rays can also help to determine other problems, such as lower back pain.

Common Treatments for Whiplash

  • Adjustment of spinal column
  • Electric and heat therapy
  • Massaging of neck area

Chiropractic treatments will work to reduce and eventually eliminate neck pain associated with whiplash. Expect to have 6-8 adjustments within your first two weeks of visiting. The amount of visits will decrease as your symptoms subside. Whether you suffer from headaches, lower back pain, or whiplash, be sure to consult Clearview Chiropractic.
